Low-Key Start To Holcomb's New Term As Indiana Governor

Low-Key Start To Holcomb's New Term As Indiana Governor

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb will have a low-key start to his second term on Monday as the coronavirus pandemic that has dominated the past year continues looming over the state.

The 52-year-old Republican governor, who won a landslide reelection in November, entered office in 2017 with an inauguration ceremony attended by about 2,000 people at the state fairgrounds coliseum.

His oath-taking ceremony on Monday will be largely a virtual event in keeping with the COVID-19 precautions that he has urged.

Holcomb says he wants to focus during the coming months on distributing the coronavirus vaccines and helping the state’s economy recover.
